to the new economy, even in a period of economic growth, has not delivered the kind of employment that's necessary to sustain the economy. so i ask if any of you might comment on how the loss of direct support for 1.3 million americans in the wealthiest country ever imagined on the planet at a time of record profits by corporations can somehow be acceptable when you have cities like flint, michigan, or saginaw, michigan, that continue to struggle to try to connect their work force with the next economy. to me, this just seems like an affront to all that is good and right, and it's not something we ought to stand for. finally, i just want to say thank you for helping members of congress who ought to understand that this is just not economic data that we're looking at, but this is a decision that'll literally affect the lives, health, and well being of millions of americans and the fact you're willing to come help make that case is something we're grateful for. thank you. >> thank you, chris. why don't you begin and we'll get to the other direct questions. >> thank you so very quickly, c

difficult to forecast exactly one that is going to be. in part because the economy is -- it is a little bit more strong. as a result that extends the time in which the treasury -- atment can do things some point congress is going to have to do that. i suppose the earliest it could possibly be is february. it is much more likely that it is sometime in spring or the beginning of the summer. then you are going to get the debate over -- we should look at tax hikes, changes in entitlement. it is hard to see how they are going to get any agreement on those areas. particularly in election year. the house is expected to adjourn for the year on friday and the senate shortly after. a lot of high-profile legislation still hanging in the balance. it is the list of what is likely to make it through the 113th congress. i think the only thing that is likely to get through is the defense authorization act. will see what gets included. one thing we will be watching is to see whether any legislation sanctioning iran is added to that bill. the administration is doing everything it can to prevent congress from

close friday, they ended what was a pretty big week for the u.s. economy. stocks high, unemployment low, and the economy growing better than anyone expected. zane asher is in new york with what it means and how it all happened. >> reporter: fredricka, it was a big week for the economy. car sales rose, new-home sales roared and the unemployment rate dropped to 7%, the lowest since 2008. and it fell for positive reasons, because people are finding work. earlier this year, the unemployment rate declined because a lot of people got discouraged, gave up looking for work and weren't counted, but the opposite seems to be happening. it's added more jobs since 2005 and the gains are not in low-wage sectors. a lot of hiring in health care, transportation, professional services like accountants and travel agents. wages are also up and americans are working more hours. the list goes on. the report pushed the dow up nearly 200 points friday. wall street is thinking the federal reserve will reduce the stimulus program soon. certainly a sign the economy is ready to stand on its own two feet. but remem
a floundering economy. there is one area that can help break the logjam, not solve all our problems, certainly, but help us significantly along the way. congress should address the critical needs of our nation's infrastructure deficit. roads, bridges, transit systems are all increasingly at risk. we are facing an inadequate state of repair, construction of new facilities are on hold and we are losing ground in meeting our own needs, let alone the challenges of global competition. yet, this challenge is an opportunity for some potential progress. we know what to do to meet this challenge. we can write a new transportation bill that will meet today's needs. it just needs more money. there is a vast coalition that supports additional resources for infrastructure. the so-called special interests that are so often at odds are remarkably aligned when it comes time to recognize and fix this problem. business, labor, professional groups, local government, environmentalists, truckers, bicyclists all agree. the paralysis that surrounds questions of raising taxes does not necessarily need to apply in thi
that must mean that the economy is getting stronger and the federal reserve will stop putting $85 billion in the economy, interest can go up and investors tend to sell stock. there is good news, the stock market goes up. this morning at 8:30 a.m. i'm watching these unemployment numbers. they were better than i thought they were going to be and the only thing i was certain of was that the stock market is going down and it closes up 200 oh points. it's a good thing that i'm m not worth my money today.ause >> there you go, boy are you worth your money on a dale lay basis. what the quality of jobs. >> we wanted the numbers. we want them above 125,000. we've been getting 159,000 per month. for the last two months we've been averaging 200,000 job created. once you have the raw numbers you to say what kind of jobs are these? if you are getting jobs that pay $.7 an hour, then people will need two of them. those positions paid as much as $26 an hour. that's the good news. better quality. but about 20% of the jobs came in the relatively low-wage sectors like retail, leisure and hospitality. we're s

fuego, with demand outstripping supply. and if the economy keeps improving, things will get even better for the hotel operators. hilton is, in fact, the world's largest hotel chain. it's under a number of brands, not just hilton. waldorf astoria, conrad, doubletree, embassy suites, hampton, homewood suites. now it's expected to price next thursday at $18 to $20 a share. i want to give you a head start to focus on this one. a little over a week, stock's trading under the symbol hlt. at the midpoint of that range, this would be a $19.3 billion company and the stock would be fairly expensive by most metrics. however, i still think it makes sense for you to try to get in on the hilton deal. let me tell you why. i think it's likely the stock will pop on the first day of trading, as has been the pattern for the vast majority of ipos this year. some of that is because hilton is private equity backed ipo by blackstone. blackstone took the chain private in 2007 and now they're spinning it off again as a private company. last month we saw another hotel play from blackstone come public. i'm talkin

with stakeholders from all areas of our economy and with the administration and the courts to ensure an open, deliberative thoughtful process, we held several hearings and issued two public discussion drafts in may and september of this year which led to the formal introduction of the innovation act in october. i believe that it takes the necessary steps to address abusive patent litigation. abusive patent litigation is a drag on our economy. everyone from independent inventors to startups to mid and large-sized businesses face this constant threat. the tens of billions of dollars spent on settlements and litigation expenses associated with abusive patent suits represent truly wasted capital. wasted capital that could have been used to create new jobs, fund r&d and create new innovations and technologies that promote the progress of science and useful arts. and that's what innovation is really about, isn't it? if you're able to create something, invent something new and unique, then you should be allowed to sell your product, grow your business, hire more workers and live the american dream.
care debate is over, that we've got to make this work. the real issue is going to be the economy. the average wages of working americans declined in the past ten years, how do rewe restore growth in the pocket books not just in the stock market for the american people? we've got to lean in on that and start addressing the concerns of parents trying to send their kids to college, get them jobs. retirement security, these are things that have been put on the side and it's really a discredit that congress is focusing on middle class concerns. >> congressman, to that point, we're seeing a rising movement across the country in support of raising the minimum wage, something that republicans and congress seem to have no interest in doing. but are you hearing from constituents that that's a concern to them? do you think ultimately we could see enough pressure brought to bear that even republicans in congress admit that we need to raise the minimum wage that it would be good for the economy and lift a lot of people out of poverty? >> absolutely. when you see the stories about food service
myself with what john had to say. in this day and age we face a number of crises. i think the economy is not performing the way we would like. real wages have been stagnant in our country for more than a decade. think about that. at the time when the cost of college and a whole host of other things, health care has going up, real wages have been frozen. you're familiar with the budget problem that we face. there is a growing disparity between the haves and have nots in our society and that should concern all of us over time. and all these things are in some ways int related. so if i would pick one thing i would agree with what john had to say. what is our comparative advantage? how do we grow this economy in a very competitive world and in particular how do we empower, not just give but empower our citizens through hard work and thrift and all those sorts of things to enjoy some of the fruits of that growth particularly the third that aren't getting the education, the kids that aren't getting the quality of education that they need to be economically relevant in a competitive global e

economic growth and growing the economy and giving everyone a chance to go ahead. people don't want redistribution. but with the republican party offering very little his message resonates with the democratic base. >> if you don't think we should raise the minimum wage, let's hear your idea to increase people's earnings. you don't think of child should have access to preschool, tell us what you would do differently to give them a better shot. martha: increase the inmum wage and increase childhood education. >> he spoke as if he hadn't been president. he spoke as if he's on the outside of his own presidency. he has been president for five years. what we have seen in the speech and what we'll continue to see is more class warfare because this is who he is. he is a leftist and essentially a socialist. so he believes in waging the class warfare. when he talks about -- when he spoke about the american dream he has a warped leftist view of that dream. he believes the state should use its to force greater income he:quality. when government do that it's essentially called communism. the ame

as an economy in growth and per capita terms that all of the major economies for a system that delivered less effective outcomes for a smaller percentage of our population. in short, quoting somebody i know well, we were spending more each year and getting less. our economy suffered, families suffered, and all of it was unnecessary. as president obama has said, fighting to deliver quality, affordable health insurance and the security that comes with it to every american is paramount. this is about making sure that everyone in the united states gets a fair shake, and it's about the economic imperative as we continue to rebuild our economy and build a better bargain for the middle class. that's what the affordable care act does, by using touchtone american values of transparency and competition to improve health care protection, and affordability to those americans who already have insurance, and to provide new affordable care options for consumers who either don't have it or want to switch their insurance. we finally put in place real solutions that have been at work for generations, and we wi
, the latest jobs report is out showing a better than expected 203,000 jobs added to the economy in the month of november with the unemployment rate dropping to 7%. this is now the lowest unemployment rate we've seen since the financial crisis. it comes on the heels of revisions that show the economy growing last quarter at one of the fastest rates since the onset of the great recession. at this pace, 2013 will be the best year for job creation since 2005. congress, of course, still has it in its power to screw things up. but it also has the power to make things better. one of the most persistent bedevilling problems with job creation throughout this entire recovery has been that low-wage jobs have accounted for half of job creation in the past three years according to analysis through april of this year. and congress, if it wanted to, could do something about that today. it could vote to raise minimum wage. and president obama would sign it immediately. so we have reached into the alternate reality in which that happens and we present the latest installment of our series in which those lawma
